Depending on where you live in the United States, school might have started a month ago or it might have started just last week. No matter when it started, you’re probably spending time in class talking about literature. Students who have just returned to the classroom are talking about their summer reading books while students who are already back in the school swing may be delving into literary classics as a class.

When you read a new book you’re likely to encounter words you don’t see every day. For example, Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë includes words you probably know, like fidget and ferocious, but it also includes words that are a little more unusual, like deportment, interpose, and morose.

Play Word-O-Rama has games based on words from many classics of English literature. Choose a title and a game, and get to know the spelling and definition for each word simply by playing and having fun. And if the book you’re studying is not featured here? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Simply go to our sister site, Vocabulary Spelling City and enter a list of words you’d like to learn from a book you’re reading. Then choose a game and get practicing! When the fun’s done, you’ll be yards ahead of where you started.
